    Picked this up on a whim but in reality I already have the (Precision) basses covered. In pretty great condition for a 20+ year old instrument. The imperfections worth noting:

    - Some tarnishing on the tuning keys and bridge which may be able to be buffed off (I haven't tried).
    - A couple small imperfections in the factory finish that are very hard to photograph.
    -One small ding on the E side of the neck near the first position.
    - A bit of discoloration is just beginning to appear on the edges of the fretboard.
    - A small bubble/wave has developed on the E side of the pick guard, where you might normally stick a pick. It has raised a bit between the screws.
    - Some buckle rash on the back of the bass.
    - Recently noticed a slight split in the fretboard at the heel (pics in post #17). I've had this bass for a while, played it a lot and A) never even noticed this split until a couple days ago and B) never had any issues with stability, playability, or anything else. I would be inclined to say it's cosmetic only but I'm not a luthier so I won't say for certain. I've attached some photos, including a new photo of some buckle rash that I noticed on the back as well.

    Electronics work just fine, frets don't show any significant wear.

    No trades, drastic price drop to reflect the issues noted. $500 picked up in central KY (42718).

    Received a question about the weight of the bass...

    Using my cheap bathroom scale I got weights between 8.8lb-9.4lb. So I'd say around, or just over 9lb.

    What's the nut width? 1 1/2, 1 5/8, 1 3/4?

    Also, alder or ash body?

    long story short, bass was sold but is now back in my possession and up for grabs.

    to answer the questions -

    nut width is either 1 5/8" or 1 11/16". i don't have a precise rule or caliper and it's just hard for me to tell. no idea on wood species...the spec sheet isn't with the documentation that I have.

    really looking for a quick sale so hit me with offers.

    If I could sell the two basses I'm currently trying to move, this would be my top TB pick right now.

    Ok guys. Back up for grabs. While packing the bass up for shipment, I noticed a slight split in the fretboard at the heel. Buyer backed out so I'm offering it up as is. I've had this bass for a while, played it a lot and A) never even noticed this split until 2 days ago and B) never had any issues with stability, playability, or anything else. I would be inclined to say it's cosmetic only but I'm not a luthier so I won't say for certain. I've attached some photos, including a new photo of some buckle rash that I noticed on the back as well.

    $500 picked up in central KY. I'm within reasonable driving distance (42718) to Nashville, Indy, and Cincy. Not interested in shipping. Want the buyer to see in person so there's no surprises.
